Stuff like that makes you wonder which came first, the bench or the basket? If the basket was there first, it's probably down to the decision maker in the parks department being ignorant of the course and how it's played. If it was the bench that was there first, it's down to a poor course designer. No amount of warning signs can fix bad course design.
